£4K raised for Pancreatic Cancer UK at Stowe Family Law LLP Grand Cup event

I am delighted to announce that nearly £4,000 was raised from the generous crowd of race goers for Pancreatic Cancer UK during our day at York Races on Saturday.

It was a terrific day which featured a dramatic dead heat in the Stowe Family Law LLP Grand Cup race.

Fighting against this deadly disease is something I feel very strongly about.

At present, pancreatic cancer is the tenth most common cancer in the UK. While that may not sound like much at first glance, the actual numbers are staggering.

In 2011 alone, around 8,300 people in the UK died as a result of pancreatic cancer. That works out at roughly 23 people every day.

The survival rate for pancreatic cancer is depressingly low. Only four per cent of people diagnosed with this disease will survive longer than five years.

What is perhaps even more shocking is that while the disease is the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in the country, it receives less than one per cent of the money spent on cancer research.

Considering the amount of damage pancreatic cancer does, and how little money is spent on research, I feel like anything that can be done to raise awareness and money for it is worth doing.

I would like to thank everyone who attended the Stowe Family Law LLP Grand Cup at York racecourse  for their generosity.

A fun day out and money raised for a good cause. What more can you ask for?
